Minimal pop duo Bouquet have released a video for their single “Stacks On Stacks.” The clip comes from the vision of Jennifer Juniper Stratford, a video artist and founder of Telefantasy Studios, an avant-garde television studio and analog media lab.
In a Dream is the debut 5-song EP from Bouquet. Each song on the record offers a portal into Bouquet’s universe. Guitar and synthesizer blend and divide as Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs’ In A Dream’s landscapes of trembling electronics invoke such unclassifiable wonders as Young Marble Giants and This Mortal Coil, synth heroes Cluster, and the dulcet sensibilities of Sibylle Baier.
In A Dream will be released on March 10 via Ulrike / Folktale Records. Half of the 10″ records pressed will be on black vinyl and the other half on white vinyl. The record was mixed by producer Cole Marsden Greif-Neill (Julia Holter, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Beck).
Los Angeles band Bouquet with a vision of pop songwriting combined with a minimal sound analog electronic sounds. The members originally hail from the San Francisco Bay Area, where Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs fronted the folk-pop outfit The Finches, while also working as a visual artist. Max Foreman has a background in experimental composition, and cofounded the instrumental trio Tenebre. The two have joined their technical and creative approaches to music-making, along with visual elements – including prints, sculptural objects, and projections – by Pennypacker Riggs.
Bouquet has played live performances supporting acts such as Geneva Jacuzzi, Ariel Pink, EMA, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Sonny and the Sunsets, Lori Goldston (Nirvana), Nite Jewel, and Mt. Eerie; playing at The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Night Court at Art Basel Miami; and All Tomorrow’s Parties Festival in the UK, curated by TV on the Radio.
